A documentary study of mainstream Cyberpunk films of the 1980s created by director Andrew J. Holden. The film uses the structure of literary theorist Northrop Frye to describe the common, repeating stories in Western culture, and how Cyberpunk can be defined and understood according to that analysis, with a focus toward American film industry portrayal of race, gender, and government.

The use of familiar themes, films and literature helps introduce the subject of Cyberpunk as a critical parody of the classicist narrative of society and the traditional power-structure, as well as the often oversimplified roles of Good and Evil. This video really is a must-see if you consider yourself to be a part of any of the post-cyberpunk subcultures.
